WHO IT'S FOR

Women who are pregnant and want to take care of their baby starting from taking care for themselves.

DFWp is addressing to women who want to get prepared for topics such as:

Fear of birth

The feelings of fear of giving birth, stress and anxiety about the smooth conduct of the procedure, are perfectly natural to feel. Sometimes we experience them with such intensity, which is difficult to manage. With DFWp, we reduce fear, so that the enjoyment of childbirth becomes the most adorable point of attention.

Managing birth pain

The more optimistic, calm and determined we enter the delivery room, the more likely is to feel equanimity and happiness through birth. With DFWp, we learn to manage pain, embracing it as part of our experience.

Mother-baby bond

The first bonding an infant develops becomes model for the subsequent relationships it will create in its life. It creates expectations about whether it is worthwhile to be loved and whether it can rely on others. With DFWp we learn how to build a healthy relationship with the baby.

Postnatal depression - Baby blues

Many times, and even though all things around labor have worked well, we may not feel peace and happiness as expected; on the contrary we may feel stressed, sad, helpless, difficult to concentrate, exhausted, even have intense mood swings. With DFWp we learn to recognize when these symptoms are normal and when is the right time to ask for help and support.

Couple as "mom & dad"

When a couple of love partners become parents, then what is needed is rebalance. With DFWp, we learn to identify expectations before baby comes, to enhance companionship, to cooperate, to spend time with and for the baby (both partners), to maintain our love life, and to put limits on the involvement of third parties in the relationship.
